When to Schedule Heating and AC Maintenance
You should schedule maintenance appointments for your heating and cooling systems once a year. Ideally, you will book your air conditioner maintenance in early spring, before the hot weather sets in. The best time for heating maintenance is in early autumn, prior to the onset of cold weather. However, if you miss these windows – don’t worry! You can make a maintenance appointment with Hancock Refrigeration any time.
If you haven’t seen a professional HVAC technician in the last year, it’s good to book a maintenance appointment as soon as possible. This type of routine care will help you avoid more serious service calls later. Sign up for one of our maintenance plans and we’ll help you stay on top of regular scheduling.
Peak Performance Plan from Hancock Refrigeration
Hancock Refrigeration provides comprehensive maintenance that includes a full system inspection. We look for pending problems that might indicate the need for a repair or replacement part.

- Check and calibrate your thermostat
- Straighten and clean condenser coil fins
- Inspect and tighten unit wiring
- Replace your air filter
- Adjust and lubricate motors and bearings
- Inspect and clean blower wheels
- Inspect and adjust belts and pulleys
- Check refrigerant levels for AC units
- Clean and inspect heating elements in furnaces

Routine maintenance is a worthwhile investment for your heater and air conditioner because it will help you save money in the long run. Our maintenance services are designed to target potential problems and help you head them off before they get worse. There are other benefits that come from a well-maintained HVAC system as well.

Schedule Your Maintenance Appointment
If you can schedule your HVAC maintenance for early spring or fall, your HVAC system will be fresh and efficient for the entire heating/cooling season. However, we work hard to accommodate your schedule any time of the year. We’ve been scheduling maintenance appointments for the Mechanicsville, California, Lusby, Leonardtown, La Plata, and Prince Frederick, MD areas since 1970.
